These exquisite hand-formed beeswax tapers are crafted in a monastery by monks who do this work during periods of silence and solitude. We are particularly attracted to their tapers for purification, a sweet scent, and the soft glow of light when lit. The hives are maintained on their property or nearby. Compassionate work.
“Beeswax, the oldest known raw material for candles, is a metabolic product of the honeybee. The wax is exuded from glands on the abdomen of the worker bees and used to make the honeycomb. The wax acquires its color and pleasing scent when in contact with honey and pollen. Beeswax has a sweet and natural scent all its own.
Offered bundled in a pack of five or for those of you who want bulk, we offer 25 tapers boxed.
History: The beehive has been known since antiquity for its unique spiritual and energetic powers. Honey and Beeswax, are considered to this day a gift from mother nature and possess ethereal and mystical qualities.
Intentions: The burning of a beeswax candle is one way of getting the wisdom of the bee and a world of benefits from products that are made from the bee. By choosing products that are made with high consciousness we fill ourselves with the same energy which makes us strong and keeps us connected to mother nature.
When you burn a beeswax candle the air in the room is purified, in sharp contrast to paraffin candles.
The air we breathe contains billions of electrically charged particles called positive ions. Positive Ions help us absorb and utilize oxygen, and therefore affect our lives and well being in a powerful way. The positive ions in the air can affect our mood, energy, and health. Too many positive ions make us feel bad and they are loaded with toxic particles and allergens that are drawn to them and suspended in the air. Negative ions, on the other hand, balance the air by increasing the ratio of negative ions to positive ions, the ideal and necessary scenario for clean air.
The more negative ions you have in the air the better you will feel. Negative ions are nature’s air purifiers, cleaning the air of dust, mold, bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants. A beeswax candle is the only candle that actually produces negative ions (burning other candles produce positive ions), which help to remove pollution from the air.
If you live in the city, your household air probably contains allergens, dust, and airborne toxins, otherwise known as free radicals, which interfere with air quality. Next time, instead of using an electric air purifier try burning beeswax candles which purify, clean, and refresh the air as they burn.
